Given that Pinot Noir grapes are good enough to make Champagne, that most regal of sparkling wines, this Pinot Noir casks were thought worthy of creating a finish for this soft and honeyed malt.
This is the first time Pinot Noir casks have been used with Deanston whiskies. Notes of vanilla, citrus and sweet white wine are delivered with a zing so zesty, you can practically hear them. The spirit was first distilled and filled into whisky refill casks on Dec 13, 2002, before it was transferred into Pinot Noir casks on June 14, 2018.
COLOUR: Light gold.
NOSE: Light and crisp, orchard fruits followed by creamy vanilla and oak, giving way to a subtle hint of green grape.
